Join the new ZIG - The Floured Hands

Ah, bread, or pain, or lechem, brot, broa, pane, bolo, naan, and so many other names, is a staple of food for virtually every culture.  Is it true that a table is not fully set without a basket of bread?

Are you interested in learning how to bake bread?  Are you an experienced baker willing to share tips, techniques and favorite recipes?  Do you just want to talk about bread?  Well then, our new bread Zoom-in Group (ZIG), The Floured Hands, is just for you.

Starting soon, we will be creating a weekly Zoom-based shared conversation about baking bread.  We will focus on one topic per weekly meeting, lasting no more than an hour, with topics like selecting the best ingredients, equipment, mixing, yeast, kneading, rising (or proofing), shapes, baking, and many more.

Until we get past our initial few meetings and get any “bugs” ironed out, the group size will set at 10.

Jeff Holst will be the initial discussion leader.  The plan is for a different member to select a topic and facilitate each weekly meeting. Group Meetings will be on Tuesday's at 10:00 AM starting 4/7/2020. If you are interested in joining The Floured Hands, register online using ID: 3418
